Non-council grants and funding

    External funding considerations

    When applying for external funding, you should consider:

    • that your grant proposal meets the criteria of the organisation, as each one will have different priorities
    • that funding availability may vary depending on time of year, so build a working relationship with your local trusts
    • whether your organisation falls within the boundaries of the organisation, as they will only invest in their area
    • whether you have supplied all the information needed in your application.

    Other funding options

    There are many grants and funding options outside Auckland Council that support sport and recreation - for events, general operations and projects.

    These organisations have on-going funding opportunities throughout the year:
